    You've got a lot patience and dedication to clothing, NOBD. I would die of boredom taking all these pictures.

    Hehe. It takes up some time, yes, but I'm getting faster at shooting and editing. I just hope people are not dying of boredom watching them.

    Those dresses are amazing looking from home made skills.


    Love the designs and colors you picked and what an innovative use for high quality shirts.


    Absolutely genius.

    Drawing something for and with them is faster and they really seem to appreciate it (well, at least for an hour or so). The first one is not my favourite kind of subject to draw, but hey. (And I didn't feel like drawing the hands...)
    I like the duck in the second one though.
